time since last week's elections. nancy pelosi holds a news conference with a newly elected democratic members of the 130th congress. senate leaders talk about the upcoming negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff. that is followed by more on the potential tax hikes and spending .an hollen va = = we held a briefing with newly elected democrats. patrick murphy who defeated alan webb spoke to the new members who take office early next year when the 130 congress convenes. this is 20 minutes. >> at length of time it took for our new members to come onto the platform here is music to my ears into your ears as well. they say that a picture is worth 1000 words. the picture that you see before you is worth millions of votes. millions of aspirations of the american people. problem solvers to come to washington to get the job done. today we welcome our democratic freshmen to washington. they are extraordinary leaders who will make our house democratic caucus the first in history to have a majority of women and minorities in the caucus. you can applaud that. before you you see a broad coaliti
question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
on this topic, they'll get plenty of help from our side. >> there's been talk about nancy pelosi and the speculation that she's going to step down as minority leader. have you heard anything about that and what are your thoughts about that? you're returning to work tomorrow. >> well, i got in trouble two years ago when i was asked that question because i really didn't at that time think that then speaker pelosi was going to want to be minority leader. if he wants to be minority leader, she will have that job as long as she wants it. she's been a tireless worker for the party. if she decides to step down, i think actually the leadership pieces will fall into place pretty quickly without contention in the democratic caucus and we'll have a very, very strong leadership contingent going forward in this congress. but right now, she hasn't laid her cards on the table. i assume we'll learn more later this week. >> i think that was a really good answer. i don't think you can get in trouble from that. you did a great job. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, thomas. >>> florid
mcconnell, house speaker john boehner and nancy pelosi. so, will we get a deal? one man getting a lot of attention is erskine bowles. did you ever think your name would be part of pop culture? you are the bowles in simpson bowles. >> better be simpson bowles than bowles simpson since everybody knows him by his initials here in washington. >> so, when you talk about things, sacred cows, untouchables, whatever the word might be, in your proposal, the one paul ryan decided not to back, the one barack obama decided not to back, you had an increase in the federal gasoline tax. caps on mortgage interest. charitable donations and retirement contributions. these were all top choices. you also increased the eligibility age for medicare and social security. reduced benefits for wealthier seniors. some of those things average democrats and republicans say they agree on, other, they loathe them. is there anything that should be untouchable? >> the problems are real, no easy way out. we've got to come up with at least $4 trillion of deficit reduction and that's not the maximum amount we need to do
